It’s sharp suits and shades all the way as The Chicago Blues Brothers perform blues and soul hits at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch on Wednesday, September 21 at 7.30pm.

Celebrating 30 years of the Blues Brothers sensation, this all-singing, all-dancing, action-packed show pays tribute to the classic movies of John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.


It is filled with two hours of more than 30 unforgettable tunes and lots of laughs.

Jake is out of prison, and with his brother Elwood, they embark on yet another mission – to make it to Chicago and raise enough cash to bail out the orphanage.

There’s only one way they know how… getting the band back together, having a party and inviting everyone they know.

Audiences can shake a tail-feather with Jake, Elwood, the amazing Chicago Blues Band and their Sister of Soul.

This sensational show stars seasoned performers Matt Hewitt, Michael Hyde and Pete Tobit, who are being backed by a fabulous band consisting of Richard Pardy (saxophone), Leigh Heggarty (guitar), Dave Land (trumpet/flugel horn), John Sorrell (bass), Ian Gibbons (keyboard), Marc Cecil (drums/percussion) and Tracy Graham (backing vocals).

n Tickets cost £19 and £17.30 for concessions. Call the Box Office on 01708 443333 or book online at
